Confronting Trauma

MSF (Médecins Sans Frontières or Doctors Without Borders) has been providing medical and mental health support to Palestinians in need since 1989. MSF is committed to its presence in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, where the consequences of the military occupation continue to limit people's access to medical treatment and mental health care.

Confronting Trauma, was compiled from a nine part MSF video presentation. Those are subtitled "Symptom and symbol of the occupation", "Caring for people in need", "The suffering of children", "The strong man", "Violence close to home", "Children in detention and children exposed to violence", "Limited access to health care", and "Dealing with trauma - The challenge of mental health care"-

The original MSF collection is at
